Putting a brush to a canvas slows time down for me so I notice subtleties - texture on a petal, a swipe of ripening pigment on a pear, light filtering through a child's skirt - in ways that I entirely miss when I'm running around doing my normal busy routine. Painting is how I pay attention to and process the beauty and complexity of the world (and people) around me.
